Who is Pocahontas?
His name is unknown, but he had a very weird and twisted mind. He took a group of people to search for Pocahontas, even though no one has seen her for four years. Myth has it that she was married to a warrior named "Koccum" when she was kidnapped. She was only 17 when they took her fifty-five miles away to a village. The village was called Henrico, but they taught her how to be "civilized", taught her the importance of Christmas. Well since Pocahontas's dad didn't trade arms for hostages Pocahontas was soon on her way to England. When she got to England they were in such a hurry to get her baptized and change her name to "Rebecca". She soon after got married to John Rolfe who is a widowed man. John Rolfe previously had a wife and a child but both died. Two years after they've been married Pocahontas and John had a son named "Thomas"!
A couple months later Pocahontas began to get very ill and soon died. Thomas was left in the hands of his father. John Rolfe didn't care about his son or Pocahontas he just wanted to marry her so he would get her land and he could plant more tobacco. A few years later John Rolfe remarried again and had a Daughter named "Elizabeth". A year later Thomas became very sick and soon passed.
What is Tuberculosis and Pneumonia? How to treat it!
If you would happen to have an active Tuberculosis disease, your doctor will several types of antibiotics to help prevent the bacteria from spreading to other parts of your body. Some of the antibiotics that your doctor might prescribe may include isoniazid, rifampin, pyrazinamide, or ethambutol for 6 to 12 months.
Pneumonia is an inflammation of the lungs caused by a viral or a bacterial infection.
Most people that get Pneumonia can be treated at home with a few simple steps. Such as, drinking plenty of water, get lots of rest, DO NOT take cough medicine ( ask your doctor if its safe for you to take cough syrup), control your fever.
If your Pneumonia starts getting really severe to should search for medical attention as soon as possible. You would go to the hospital if you have a serious medical problem, severe symptoms, are unable to care for yourself (eating or drinking), older than 65 or a young child, have been taking antibiotics at home and haven't been getting better.
The village Henrico was very religious centered, twice- daily church attendance was mandatory. The punishment for missing was very brutal.
- missed once: no food for a week
- missed twice: flogged
- missed often: shot, hanged, or burned at the stake
Pocahontas had a few outfits such as a deerskin dress with leggings, or the one you see in the picture above. The one shouldered dress was made for when she meets new people.
We don't know for sure if Pocahontas really saved John Smith from being killed we soon later found his journal and saw that he wrote the same thing about other women too.
